Early Career Teaching K-6

14 March 2019

Jenny Williams and Mary-Ellen Betts take you from inspiration to reality and back again.

The key to being a successful teacher is seeing yourself as a constant learner…

You can come into a school that has a lot of its own traditions and its own ways of doing things… in teaching you have to navigate school tradition, policy documents, syllabus documents and the fact that there are only 24 hours in a day… over the course of you first year there will be a lot of experimenting and trying things out and that’s just the way it is.

…One of the things that is really important for us to come to teaching with is the idea that every year is a new year.
